Circuit Breaker Power Entry Modules Mount in Tight Spaces
Tue, 03/17/2009 - 11:15am
The combination of appliance inlet and circuit breaker in the Series 6135 and 6136 power entry modules provide an alternative to fused power entry modules, especially suited for applications with high inrush currents and high transient loads. A circuit breaker is selected instead of fuses when manual reset is a desired function of the equipment. This can be highly desirable when tolerance of high inrush spikes is needed to avoid nuisance tripping. The compact 6136 fits in a 1 U enclosure. The ability to manually reset the circuit avoids the expense and inconvenience of fuse replacement.
